Monaural headsets only have one ear piece and are the alternative to the Binaural headsets. They are an ideal solution for people who need to communicate with nearby colleagues while maintaining their headset conversation.
Monaural headsets are almost always lighter that binaural headsets. This is one of their main advantages along with the fact that your other ear is available for people to talk into so that you need not remove the headset to have a conversation with someone close to you. Because of this, Monaural headsets are commonly found in call centres where staff need to liaise with colleagues and trainers.
Monaural headsets can come with a Voice Tube or a Noise Cancelling microphone. Consider the type of environment you'll be using the monaural headset in. In a busy office or call centre a Monaural NC headset would be required.
If you're connecting a monaural headset to a Deskphone you will need a connection lead. Visit our Headset Compatibility Guide to find the correct lead for your headset. Leads are specific to the make of phone and headset being used.
Always ensure that the headset that you choose comes with the best range of features.a lightweight build, ergonomic design and adjustable controls for volume and tone are all features that can be offered with a Monaural headset.
